Prayer Requests Needed

Dear church family,

Hope you experienced a fine time of thanksgiving last week. For many of us, I am sure it was a different Thanksgiving than in past years; but nonetheless, no matter who was able to be around your table, it is always good to give thanks to God for His enumerable blessings. In fact, it should NOT be confined to a day, but it should a lifestyle we practice every week.

I am thankful for you. I pray for all those sheltering at home during this pandemic each week. May God bless you. May God keep you safe. May God help us as we effort to remain joined together as a church family.

Staying connected with others within the Dalton Gardens church family is vital. One way to do this is to email or call the church office with any prayer requests that may be on your heart. Please know it also helps if you can share a need you or someone else has to address. Also, it helps to share any thanksgiving you want others to be encouraged by knowing.

Please help us to be a blessing, share a blessing, or give us an opportunity to be blessed by loving one another is Christ’s family during this unusual time.  May God bless us all. May your hope never waiver. There will be better days ahead and I just know God wants to guide us through this weird time in a way where He is honored and we grow in appreciation for one another. But it will require some effort on all our parts to come thru this time together.

In His service,

Delvona Rude: Please pray for Margie Waddell. She has pneumonia.

Scott & Karmen Rouse: Happy Thanksgiving to all! May our continued thankfulness outshine all other things.

Ronda Deane: Pray for my dad, John. He is struggling with a slow recovery from hip replacement surgery.

Freda Campbell: Please pray for my great niece, Jessica Corder. She has had a slow recovery from gall bladder surgery. After several rounds of tests they found a lesion on her lung. She is scheduled for biopsy on Wednesday.

Linda Bruner: Please pray for our family as we continue to deal with the death of my father and all its repercussions.

Dear Church,

We have been so blessed this past year and are so very thankful and grateful to God, His church and family. While each of us are hurting in our own way and feel so alone at times, we are Not alone. Find a way to bless others and count your blessings each day and be thankful. Please keep all the hurting families, our country and God’s world in your prayers. He is very much alive and watching over us. We are never alone!  Also, please keep our family in your prayers, some are struggling from the consequences of what is going on in these trying times as many are. Always remember though apart, we are together in heart, Spirit, and prayer. We miss you all. We are the family of God!!

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in  Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen” Ephesians 4:20,21

Love, Hugs and Prayers, Jean and Larry Grow.

Wayne & Debbie Frisbie: I would like to offer a praise! Jeffrey learned last week that he was selected for the rank of Chief, this is very exciting because he has worked very hard to achieve this milestone. He is currently deployed so I would ask for prayers for him and his crew for their continued safety as they continue the work of keeping us safe. I had always planned to attend the ceremony if he made Chief, however he will still be deployed so that may not be possible.  Please pray for Debbie and I as we travel to the Oregon coast for the holiday, and I would ask for prayers as I try to work out my plans for the future and the vocation I will follow, I ask for the Lord’s wisdom and guidance as I move forward.

Jim & Judy Lundy: Pray that the pandemic will soon be controlled so we can all get together again soon. We miss the assembly.

Christian Egger: Excited to be here! Prayers for my sister, Deberlena. She is having a lot of stress in her life right now and was taken to the hospital for numbness. She is home now but would appreciate prayers.

Myrtle McIntire: Pray for Shannon & Jacob. They are heading to Texas for Thanksgiving. Prayers for safe travels.

Church office: Please pray for Vanessa Toombs. She is having injections in her back next week to alleviate pain. Also, prayers for Brian Smith. He is having terrible pain in his elbows which makes it very difficult to work.

From the Garden: Please join us in giving thanks to God for our healthy son, coming April 2021. Thank you for sharing this place with us.

Church Family Update…

Newby Ginnings food drive… Thanks to our church family for being so generous with bringing items for Newby Ginnings. We will be taking the van full of our donations tomorrow morning over to Post Falls. If you have any last minute items you wanted to bring you can still drop them office this afternoon at the building or bring them first thing in the morning. We plan to leave around 10am.

Our Live Stream is rolling now… Ok we have had some set backs… But thanks to Rod Bristol, Steve Taylor, Mike Swaim, Jack and Isaac Cutler and Christian things look and sound good. Thanks guys.

Next week we begin a coat drive… We want to increase the ways we can serve the families in need. We need new or gently worn coats (the gently used ones need to be clean or laundered before donating them.) We can use all sizes, infant through seniors. Hats and gloves are great also.

Please let us know if anyone has any needs… We are here help, but also trying to be extra careful during the pandemic. I can’t tell you how important it is to stay connected during this strange time and it requires both the effort of those coming to the building and those sheltering at home. Please let us know what is happening with everyone and let us know how we can help. Blessings.

Dear church family,

And now for your edification, a few things I am not thankful for…

  1. Ferris wheels,
  2. Mold,
  3. Cockroaches,
  4. My cousin’s Christmas fruitcake I receive by mail in late February,
  5. Walking into spider webs,
  6. Scissors that come in a package that needs scissors to open,
  7. Cell phone contracts,
  8. Public restrooms,
  9. Sinus drainage,
  10. That grinding sounds coming from under my hood,
  11. The increased darkness of winter,
  12. Children abused by those who are supposed to love them most,
  13. A pandemic,
  14. Missing loved ones,
  15. Broken hearts I cannot mend,
  16. The lonely I cannot reach,
  17. The bitter I cannot change,
  18. The hungry I cannot feed,
  19. The fearful of their next medical test results for whom I cannot provide peace,
  20. Those in great pain I cannot bring relief,
  21. Feeling guilty in a time of thanksgiving.

But then,

  1. I smell the butternut squash baking with cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, brown sugar, and apples in the kitchen…and I know it is Thanksgiving,
  2. The face-time calls from my children and grandchildren full of laughter I receive,
  3. I am blessed with a wife who loves me deeply,
  4. I cannot count all the blessings God bestows upon my life even though I try to count them,
  5. When my anxiety soars amazingly God’s comfort does also,
  6. When I am wounded and hurt there always is someone near who lifts me up,
  7. The wonder of God’s provision, always somehow allowing me the resources to give more,
  8. The promise of God’s presence,
  9. The grace, forgiveness, and assurance Christ Jesus provide me,
  10. The certitude I am on my way to heaven,
  11. The assurance God’s joy does not depend on my circumstances,
  12. The treasure of friends who always make me smile,
  13.  The elation that God’s blessings are new every morning,

These things and more I give thanksgiving… Oh, and you always make my list too.

“Come into his city with songs of thanksgiving and into his courtyards with songs of praise. Thank him and praise his name. The Lord is good. His love is forever…”               (Ps 100:4-5. NCV).

Happy Thanksgiving Dalton Gardens church family. Enjoy our Thanksgiving gathering this next Sunday.

Love you,

Sermon: November 22, 2020

Courage for Uncertain Times

Part 8:
“Finishing Well”

by Michael Lewis

November 22, 2020


Getting people motivated is a great  challenge , but keeping people motivated is even  harder .

Three principles about finishing well:

  1. Be grateful for the  victories  already experienced.
  2. Sometimes the greatest obstacle to finishing well is a  good   start .
  3. The most important thing we have to contribute to the mission of God’s people is our  servant’s   heart  and our  example .

Scripture: Joshua 6:18-19;  Joshua 13:1; 13; Joshua 18:3-4; Joshua

Church Family Update…

Newby Ginnings food drive… We hope to take a van load of food over to Newby Ginnings on November  30th. Please bring what you can over the next two Sundays. We are looking for non-perishable items like: canned vegetables, canned fruit, canned meat, stew is always a high demand item… And of course chili, or other soups. Also, you may bring holiday oriented things like cranberry sauce, stuffing mixes, cookies, pies, etc. But because of COVID there can be nothing homemade and everything properly packaged and not close to any expiration dates. AND… this group serving returning vets, has a desperate need for blankets and towels. So please consider buying some towels or blankets and bringing them to the church building too.

Our Live Stream is rolling now… Ok we have had some set backs. We know the sound has been a little strange and the picture has occasional had some issues too. But please know a group of people work on this every week to make it better. Turns out broadcasting live is a tad more complicated than we first thought, but we will figure it out and we hope you will hang in there with us.  PS: Your home Wi-Fi system also plays a major role in how you receive the Live Stream. You might want to check that on your end too.

Please let us know if anyone has any needs… We are here help, but also trying to be extra careful during the pandemic. I can’t tell you how important it is to stay connected during this strange time and it requires both the effort of those coming to the building and those sheltering at home. Please let us know what is happening with everyone and let us know how we can help. Blessings.
